diving in

feet first

because i never have been
a good swimmer

and i wish i knew
how to tread water
or even how to float
belly up

with a smile for the sky
and a wish for every cloud

but i only know
how to sink

and the good thing

the good thing

is that each day is shallow and
the current
carries me forward
and swimming is not the only way
to get from here to there

but in between

in between

this tide of tears
shall wash me

in the silent crest
of clean
